General information about XML format

XML or eXtensible Markup Language is an extensible markup language. Used to store and transfer data both between applications and directly in code. So it can be seen not only in the API but also in the program code. This format is recommended by the W3C, so it is often used to transfer data to both APIs and SOAP APIs.

What is XML?

  • A markup language that resembles HTML.
  • Designed to transmit data, not to display them.
  • XML ​​tags are not predefined, you must define the tags you want.
  • XML ​​is described in such a way as to be self-defined.

Why is XML needed?

Initially, this format was invented for quick and easy storage and transfer of data between applications and over the Internet. Since it is easy to read by a person and a computer, it began to gain popularity. The data in .xml is stored in plain text format, which makes it easy to compress and transfer from one device to another.
Important! XML is not an executable program code, but a data description language that can be processed by any programming language, such as java, via .Net, C++.
